Fun with a Y connector

So I got one of my friends to come over, and we played with knex. He decided to have fun with a Y connector and pretended it was a nose and lip piercing. I thought it was funny, and took pictures, then I decided to post it.

Looking for advice on panel mount connectors (something like banana plugs)

Not sure if Tech is the right place to post but it seems appropriate. I have been doing some breadboarding lately and in an effort to clean up my work I plan on making a box/panel with several commonly used components (potentiometers, audio jacks, DC jacks, other sockets). I would like to have some sort of quick way of connecting these components to a breadboard. I saw a post here in instructables on how to make Banana plug to breadboard pin jumpers. The only problem I have with this solution is that all of the panel mount banana plug jacks I can find are fairly pricey and somewhat bulky for what I want. Does anyone know of something like a panel mount breadboard socket? The components I will be using will have anywhere from 2-9+ wires coming from them so I would like a way to have some sort of socket or connector mounted with the component and use wires to connect to the breadboard only when the component will be used (as to avoid lots of excess, unused wires coming from my panel). A source of cheap banana plug jacks (female, panel mount) and crimp on male plugs would help as well, if I cant find another option.

18V drill battery connector

Hi, I want to make a connector from this 18V drill battery pack to a 5.5mm x 2.5mm DC power male plug. I am planning to use the battery to act as an external power source for a camera. I still want to leave the battery pack for the drill as it is since I will be using the drill sometimes, so soldering cables to the battery connectors is not an option. Are there any other smart ideas?

connector name (see pic)

I'm trying to replace the antenna on my Sprint Airave to get more distance (more on that later). i am trying to find the connector it uses on digikey. ive attached a picture. if you can tell me what this part is called, i'd greatly appreciate it. bonus: if you can get me a digikey/mouser/newark part number, i will post an instructable on range-boosting an Airave! also, i havent examined the pcb extensively yet, but if i slap a giant antenna on this board, will i have to put some sort of load inductance? i havent worked with near-Ghz frequencies before, so i dont know how sensitive these things are to loading. thanks, Daniel

Identifiying and sources of connectors

I started investigating the insides of a cheap forward facing camera thinking it might be possible to mount the camera module on some old glasses frames and connect it back to the recorder / playback unit with a cable. I was happy to discover the camera module was concted to the main board by a multi pin socket and a couple of dabs of glue. Unfortunatley I have no idea of how to identify and find a matching plug and socket to make a cable. the main body of the plug is 13mm long 3mm wide and about 3mm deep and has 15 pins on each side these pins are a little under 1mm appart. I hope someone is able to offer some help with how to identify and find another.

Popular 2 pin power connector for PCBs?

I have made a prototype PCB board which requires connection to a 9V battery or a wall-wart. The board is very small and doesn't have much extra space. I'm currently using a female header(as used in arduino) with 2 pins broken off into which I'm plugging in the wires from battery. In the final board, I want to be using some connector which is widely available, and PCB friendly. The one which I have most commonly seen being used is the wall-wart female power jack which is way too big for my requirement. Any popular option which is only slightly bigger than a snipped female header? -Antzy

Garmin nuvi suffers an untimely end

Help me save my Nuvi.  I was replacing a battery that would not hold a charge when the screen module slipped taking with it the flexible circuit connection to the main circuit board.  My attempt to revive the Nuvi is now on life support as I'm not sure if the connection is mechanical or uses some kind of adhesive... If anyone can shed light on this pesky problem it would be much appreciated. Thanks

Adapt a computer ATX power supply to add a single 2 wire 12V connector

 I need to replace a 350W power supply that supplies a computer setup and LCD screen in an all in one computer. The failing power supply has one single 2 wire(one black, one white) connector powering a power board that supplys the power to the LCD screen. Can I use any ATX power supply that has the same or more amps on each of the 12V 5V and 3.3V and........ Can I adapt the spare 4 pin molex connectors to make a 2 wire single connector? I can take photos if necessary. hi, thank you

Repair damaged laptop power plug

I have this damaged laptop (HP) power plug - I think my dad closed the car door with it sticking out. When I connect it to the power jack the computer starts up but then the power drops. Can you think of a reason why? The power jack seems to be fine. The computer starts up perfectly with a different HP power unit. I haven't checked it with a multimeter yet. I tried to use thick aluminum foil around the damaged part but it didn't work. With no replacement HP power plug is my only option to replace both the plug and the jack with some other male-female power plugs?

Knex Shotgun: Swarm

M'kay guys. You are probably woundering why my shotgun ible is gone. I will tell you. It never really go through the filters, and I PM'ed Mikeasaures to get him to pull it through. He was quite helpful, but told me in no uncertain terms that it had to be a step by step. So I took it down, and am reposting it now. Feel free to comment even if you already did on the old one, LOLZ. Oh, I have noticed there is a feature to "Share Photos or Videos." Is that the proper way to set up a slideshow? Sorry that the picture quality is lame, but they are stupid good considering the fact it was cloudy and raining when I took them. Don't worry, I will try to avoid making this mistake in the future. Swarm is a wicked indoor knex war shotgun, able to fire up to sixteen green rods, eight white rods, or four yellow rods. Now this is not my gun, just sayin'. It is KK's shotgun prototype updated with a the TR8 body, trigger, and handle. I thought I would post some nice, clear pictures so you can build it too. What really turns me away from this gun is that it is downright ugly. Some of you guys might not mind that, but I do. A lot. The good thing is this is powerful, reliable, and a shotgun, not to mention fun. Range is over sixty feet, and it is a tube and stick gun, so it will never fail. It is also a very fun gun to mess with. Swarm also has a very comfy handle, a strong stock, and nice grip. So enjoy the pictures. :D While this may not be a good primary for an indoor war, it would be very handy to have, if you have something like the ZKAR or my Epidemic to use, as reloading is a pain, unless you use yellows. Those are quick to load and hit hard. Please comment and subscribe. Feel free to leave nice long comments, as I like to read them. If you need any help, just ask. If you have any suggestions for my next project, please tell me.

NAR strangeness NOW WITH PICTURES

So I was testing my NAR and my TR18 next to each other and noticed that the NAR doesn't really like finned  rods.  In some cases it actually shot normal red rods further than finned ones; anyone else noticed anything like this? I'm sure it's not a problem with the fins; my TR18 shot them about twice as far with the same bands as the NAR.  I think it may be because you have to place the fins further forward on the rod because of the bullet lock. On an unrelated note, I don't really make all that much myself, I modify other peoples' things, so if you want me to give any weapons a new better looking and more comfortable body (if you say a WORD about that DJ...), just say and I'll see what I can do.  I'll only accept your own designs, no volunteering others' work.  If you want me to do someone else's design, send them a PM and get them to speak to me directly.  And no TRs. I would upload some pictures of my previous work, but my library on the site has been mysteriously emptied, and I can't find them in my picture folders.  I still have a mod of SK's shotbow built, so I'll post a picture of that as an edit later if there's interest. EDIT:  Pictures of my shotbow, two very old Striker mods (IaC's Striker), an old one of my TR18 (I made it much better than it is shown here, but this is the only picture I could find), and something I think I modded from IaC's assault pistol (this one was one of my first attempts at a mod and isn' my best work).

Mag-safe type Audio Connector for Headphones?

Would it be possible to make a Magsafe-like cable for headphones? I'm always either editing video or listening to music while on the desktop in my family's living room. In order to not disturb everyone, I use headphones. But getting up time after time is very much a pain when I have to pull my headphones off, set them down, then head off to wherever in the house I need to go. (Kitchen, toilet, etc...) I think I've come up with a solution that would make things a lot easier. The end of the heaphone cable is normal. Standard 3.5mm. But the other end, which is usually hidden away in the left ear cup all stripped and leading to different speakers, is seperated from the ear cup, and connects and stays on with magnets! The only problem is that I'm not quite sure what to do to make this...anyone have any ideas?

a real pump action shot gun out of knex.

By a real pump action i meen it loads the round not pulls back the ram. the idea was to have a crossbow type thing. have it shoot green connectors. the pump has a claw that has hands made out of hindges. when you have somthing in the claws path that goes inside of the claw and will move the claw hands out to let go of the round. and the thing out side of the claw hands the make it grab the round. so first you lode the rounds green connectors. then you pull the pump back so that it grabs the green connector. the green connector has a rubberband on it. when you pump back the green connector is pulld back and loaded. the claw hands then go over the thing that makes them let go of the round.the next green connector is loaded. the green connector is put in place by the mag. when the greenconnector is fired it slides over the nexted one loaded and leaves the rubberband on the next green connector. then you pump agein and the prosses starts all over again for as long as you want.

Revolver with swing out cylinder

I was looking at guns on Wikipedia and saw a pic of a revolver with a swing out cylinder. I went straight to work and made the swing out cylinder, but I couldn't figure out how to make the rest of the gun and keep the cylinder from moving all over the place. I don't have a digital camera, but I can tell you how I made it. 1. Take a blue rod 2. Attach a dark grey connector on 1 end of the rod 3. Put 1 grey cylinder spacer on the rod, followed by 2 blue ring spacers 4. Put the blue rod through the hole of another dark grey connector 5. Put 2 more blue ring spacers on, followed by 1 more grey cylinder spacer and attach 1 more dark grey connector to the other end of the blue rod 6. Take 1 white rod and snap on 2 white snowflake connectors, then snap the rod into the dark grey connector in the middle of the blue rod (the dark grey connector should be in the middle of the 2 white snowflake connectors) 7. Take another white rod and attach a dark grey connector on 1 end of it, then slide the white rod through the hole of 1 of the dark grey connectors on the blue rod, then slide on another grey cylinder spacer and attach 1 yellow connector on top of the white rod 8. Do #7, but on the other side of the blue rod 9. For the handle, I took 3 green connectors and snapped them on to 1 white rod, then put 3 small green rods on the bottom of each green connector (Look below to find a little bit better explanation) 10. Take 3 yellow connectors and attach them to a white rod, then connect all 3 to the 3 green rods mentioned in #9 11. Take 3 more green connectors and attach them to a white rod and add 3 small green rods to the top of the 3 green connectors and attach them to the 3 yellow connectors in #10 BETTER EXPLANATION 1. A green connector has 4 places for 4 rods (I will call them teeth) 2. From left to right, it goes empty tooth, white rod, empty tooth, small green rod 3. A yellow connector has 5 teeth for 5 rods 4. From left to right, it goes small green rod (from the green connectors mentioned above), white rod, empty tooth, empty tooth, small green rod 5. Same as #2, but it goes small green rod (from the yellow connectors mentioned above), white rod, empty tooth, empty tooth If anyone knows what I'm talking about and makes these pieces & has a digital camera, please take pics and show me so ppl can see what I'm talking about. Also, if anyone finds out how to make the rest of the gun, please tell me and show me how you made it (but please don't take credit for my design of the cylinder & handle. If you mod/have to mod any of these 2 parts to make the rest of the gun, don't forget to credit me for the original design of the 2 parts). Also, if anyone does make the gun, please post an instructable for it. I would love to see the gun that I almost got to make. So please tell me where to go to get the instructable I you decide to post it. Also, the gun doesn't have to shoot anything. Thanks to everyone that contributes.

It's a toshiba it has a piece that comes off but you need it to connect it to the laptop; and when the connector comes off it doesn't have pins, but piece that sticks out.

Knex holster for Nerf Maverick

We all know how incredibly cool the Nerf Maverick rev-6 is, and if not than research it a little bit online and you'll see. The dart blaster's got its own cult following, so why not an awesome Knex holster to match!?It's comfortable, easy to assemble, and fits perfectly. It can probably be used with other toy guns as well but i designed this one with the Maverick particularly in mind.My holster is different colors than the usual because I used pieces from a moon lander or a robot or something.It attaches to pants by belt loop and by putting the rod in your front pocket, of course you can customize these two parts to fit your own pants better. I use a red rod so the holster angles forward a little but a gray rod would probably level it straight.Grey rods = 10 (one gray = two yellow rods and a connector!)Red rods = 3Blue rods = 7little Green rods = 4Yellow connectors = 10Green connector = 1Red connectors = 8Orange connectors = 12light Gray dual connectors = 8dark Gray uni connectors = 3little Blue rings = 4

What would you like to see in a Knex gun?

I've been thinking about making a good knex gun (and actually posting it).  Now, if you'll read this all the way through, I have a few choices for you. I've divided them into categories and sub-categories. I want you to choose one choice out of each question in the category, and I will attempt to make a gun with the most-voted-for features. Of course I'll make it look nice, it will be sturdy, etc. Now, onto the choices. It will be a ram/firing-pin gun. Stock: Connector or Rod? Ammo Storage or no Ammo Storage? Mag Storage (Yes/No)? Body: "Connector-WhiteRod-Connector" or "Connector-GreenRod-Connector"? Barrel: Tube or Connector? Mag: Removable (Yes/No)? Internal Pusher (Yes/No)? Turret: Yes or No? (It's this or a magazine, but I might be able to fit both in there somehow if someone wants that.) Mechanism: Simple True Trigger, Pump, Bolt-Action (Not recommended for connector ammo, but possible), or a Combination (such as the Logic Bow)? Handle: Simple with Wheels, or something like Mepain's Knexsayer handle? Handle Connections: Should it connect to the stock, barrel, etc? Built-in Chainsaw: Yes or no? It'd be similar to a Lancer. Guards: Trigger Guard (Yes/No)? Handle Guard (Yes/No) Foregrip Guard (Yes/No)? That's all I can think of right now. Just copy/paste that form and fill it out in your comment. Thanks for taking the time to read this and comment with your suggestions.

The phone connector end was unfortunately broken, but fortunately I have a spare :) I believe the rest of the rig works fine, and rather than throwing it out, I took a look and it was rated 5V @ 800mA DC. AFAIK, 5V is what most USB devices work off of. Would it be suitable if I snipped the end off and rewired other connectors on to this and used it as a charger for other devices? Thanks in advance!
